Public Schools Have Lowest Enrollment In Years

Albany, N.Y. - Kids across New York are heading back to class this week, but a new study shows public school enrollment is at its lowest level in years.

According to the Empire Center for Public Policy, enrollment has fallen statewide by five percent over just the last decade. School enrollments have been falling fastest in upstate counties while increases are more common downstate.

At the current rate, enrollment in New York Schools will drop to levels that haven't been seen since the 1950's.
